The Paleoclimatology and Paleoecology Research Group focuses on deciphering paleoclimates and paleoenvironments on different time scales ranging from the past centuries to the Neogene using sclerochronological, geochemical, and micropaleontological multi-proxy approaches. Our highly interdisciplinary research is conducted in close collaboration with biologists, oceanographers, and climate physicists.
- Quantifying the complex interplay of oceanographic controls on modern shallow water carbonate depositional systems
